Hi All Sifus,

I would like to seek for opinions on which LSD to go for. It is for my Proton Satria.

I have been asking around on what option available to choose from. Some suggests to go for a mivec LSD, but as everyone knows the item is quite a rare breed to find and the price is a little off from my budget.

I stumble upon Speedzone LSD. Speedone claimed their LSD is 1.5way 90% lock. Kind of not sure how does that work. Does anyone have tried their LSD (I believe this is relatively been in the market quite some time) and how does it perform?

Other option available for me to think of?

btw, I need an LSD for trackday use.

Thanks :driver:

Good that you know LSD is helpful on track, but you are puzzled how it work in exact. It prevent the slip of one wheel but instead transmit equal torque onto both sides.
1way in effect when acceleration
1.5way in effect both situation but on limited extend on deceleration if im not wrong?
2way in effect when acceleration and deceleration

exactly. way off my budget for an LSD. :bawling: Speedzone LSD will cost me RM 1k including installation. but trying to look for any info how does their stuff perform.

the perfect video on how they work for you:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DmItXixE30

kaaz is good aftermarket stuff, sure mahal!
Havent stumble upon any of those brands for my Satria.

Not familiar for your platform but Cusco, OSgiken as well produces quality differential

If im not mistaken, PZ's LSD is a replica of phantom grip LSDs. Not even sure if phantom grip is around these days anymore, but if you can find a video maybe you'll understand how they work. I have no idea how they work at all either. :hmmmm:

i would say the wedge lock by powerzone and phantomgrip is just a very basic spring loaded braking mechanism is the differential....

at max lock probably at best around 20% total lock?


way behin proper mechanical lsd/plated lsd....


but for grassroot the powerzone wedge lock is a good starter...
